That makes two of us right now.  I gave up, accepted the automatic

In my world from the beginning of commercial unix, I have never had a one
partition disk.  I'm not sure if it is that bad with today's, controllers,
drives, drivers, etc.  I hope someone chimes in with a "I see no major
problems with gpt."

My major problem was editing the automatic swap that was set at 4G and the
menu would not let me change the 4G.  The experienced option would not
accept a blank value as swap even though there was message that said it

I feel like a real idiot and am beginning to believe that it might be true.
The rest of the install was brain dead.  It was possibly a bit simpler than
the previous.  Less decisions ;)

I had the idea the following were available in the new installer.
 1.  Raid configuration
 2.  ZFS
 3.  Regular everyday simple disk partitioning as before.

I wasn't able to find any functional option except the one mentioned above.

Now, I have to accept this single partition or upgrade sources to date,
build a release and reinstall but I don't know if the problem has been
fixed.  I'll probably give it a try.  It isn't that much of a deal.

Hopefully I add something of value to this thread, but as a workaround you
can use a PCBSD image and installer to install/partion plain vanilla FreeBSD
with the options you mentioned earlier in a graphical enviroment.

Thanks Adam,

I suppose that I could just pull it into this machine and execute it as if it were sysinstall and reconfigure from the same box without having to update, make release, etc.

I'm going to give that a try.

Have a great day.
